Alexei Tertyshny: There are moments when we have to score

Traktor vs Neftekhimik post game press-conference.

"First of all, I would like to congratulate guys on the winning. The game was interesting. The beginning of the game was led by the hosts but we did a great job on the penalty kill and managed to tie the score. We changed the game the way we needed. In the third period the opponent was active in the offence but we managed to keep the score," says Neftekhimik`s head coach Vyacheslav Butsayev.

Why four imports were out of the lineup?
"Firstly, they had a game for the national team less than 24 hours ago. Three game every day for three days, it`s a lot and I doubt that they would be fresh enough. Secondly, the main reason of their absence is that their equipment was still on the way", answers the head coach to the reporter.

"The first period was quite good. On the powerplay during the shift change we had a little mess and missed the attack.In the second period there were moments when we had to score. In the third period we created enough chances to score but the opponent played well in defence and their goalie played convincingly," comments Traktor`s head coach Alexei Tertyshny.

Why have you decided to give opportunity to play to Sudnitsin?
"You know, there is no his fault in the goals missed. It`s the shift fault. We decided to give him an opportunity to shake a team a bit. There are no hidden reason", replies Alexei Tertyshny.
